apply

Postby dreamyscorpio » Sun, 07 Feb 2010 6:21 pm

Dear all,

I may wish to enquire how difficult to get an citizenship at this moment.

I do understand outcome of application will be dependent on each applicant's background, job etc so here is my story.

I am 33 yr old single, medical degree holder (not practising here though) have been living in sg for about 4 years plus. Working in one of the hospitals . Got a PR in 2007, feb. I dont hold any further degree from sg university.

Am willing to settle down here but heard many rumors that chances are good for families who own the property. Not sure how true it is.

Frankly, wish to buy a flat but here only single citizen 35 is eligible to buy HDB. FYI, condo is beyond my budget.

At the moment, application for PR took quite long and not easy to be granted so i reckon application for citizenship will be the same. I am reluctant to apply so here i am asking suggestions for chances.

thanks!

I'm afraid I don't understand your problem. You apply for Citizenship - you get it or you don't. Simple. If you don't get it, they don't take your PR away from you. Nor do they cane you if you fail to get it. So what's the problem? What is the worst thing that can happen? They give you Citizenship. The best thing? You get rejected. Two possible outcomes, neither of which are life threatening. Just apply for it and wait.

well i am asking suggestion for CHANCES AT THIS CURRENT SITUATION. The outcome of exam is either failed or passed. Everyone knows it. Same theroy applies for application of citizenship. NOT A PROBLEM AT ALL FOR ME. just looking for some discussions.I m not the type of person who die die must get ur citizenship, just dont want to waste time and money if applied in wrong timing.

I dont know who you are and where u work but actually not my problem and i dont care at all if even ur ICA officer but i have noticed ur replies in other forums are quite harsh as well.

the way u reply is like ur a Royal king from great britain. Cant image how u wil be if u were born there..

It's also pretty easy to tell where you are from.

But, let's face it, this is a forum and as such, it is made up mostly of opinion and where possible, facts. Unfortunately, you ask a question that cannot be answered so what did you expect. You think we are all seers here? Waste time? Don't bother applying for citizenship if you think you "might be wasting your time". It's never the wrong timing. There isn't an "exam" as you seem to think, that you pass or fail. But, you might get rejected as the government might feel you are not suitable for citizenship. What then? Do you say it was timing? People are still getting citizenship and they are still getting PR. They are also being rejected for both as they seem to be tightening up criteria. What are the limits & parameters? Who knows, we don't, and ICA isn't telling. So how?

What kind of discussion did you want? How's this for discussion? I don't think you should apply for citizenship. Ever. At least this gives you more latitude for "discussion". :roll:

And you are right. I don't suffer fools easily. :wink:

"Royal king from great britain" :???:

I though they had a Queen and all kings and queens were considered royal? :?

Did i say u all must have answered? I know noone can say 100% whether approved or rejected. just asked suggestions only. If unable to answer, just simply or nicely reply rather than using singpore government wont cane , etc. Hopefully, you wont be irritated if u got same reply from someone.

"I don't think you should apply for citizenship. Ever. At least this gives you more latitude for "discussion"." I m not here to listen what i should do from u. All singaporean has no humors? Before judging others, ask ur self whether u should work as a moderator?

"though they had a Queen and all kings and queens were considered royal? "

They may not think themself or they all r not considered as royal but obviously singaporean especially like u think ur so royal and will treat whoever migrate here as poor and replied back with harsh statements.

I do believe timing is one of important factors. Again, just telling my opinion

Didnt expect that i will be having a good discussion with extremely nice moderator.

I wont be replying anymore as i have found this is ridiculous. But u can still reply and hit me. Cheers!

I guess I must have assimilated pretty good if MR. I-want-to-be-a-citizen was fooled. Or is that "is the fool"? The funniest part is his thinking I am a Singaporean. So much for research. I'd have towonder how he would ever pass the Citizenship Exam seeing he disses how I reply to posts but obviously don't read them for content.

They would probably not give him citizenship as the are trying to replenish the gene-pool here and not further deplete it! :roll:

Hello..

I applied for citizenship on July 14, 2009, no result up to now.
When I inquired last week, I was told it's still on process.
Seize the day!
